Twelve adult human subjects were exposed to a sunk-cost procedure with two options: a mixed-ratio schedule of points later exchangeable for money, and an escape schedule that cancelled the current trial and initiated a new one. The mixed ratio included four values, arranged probabilistically in such a way that the expected ratios favored either persistence(More)
We describe a new species of forest frog (genus Platymantis) from Mt. Malinao, Bicol Peninsula, southern Luzon Island, The Philippines. The new species is distinguished from congeners by a moderate body size (28.3–39.1 mm for eight males; 49.8–52.7 in two females), slightly expanded terminal finger and toe disks, a distinct color pattern, a unique(More)
Laccases are copper-containing enzymes involved in the degradation of lignocellulosic materials and used in the treatment of phenol-containing wastewater. In this study we investigated the effect of culture conditions, i.e. submerged or semi-solid, and copper supplementation on laccase production by Trametespubescens grown on coffee husk, soybean pod husk,(More)
We propose a new unsupervised segmentation algorithm for high resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) images of nanocomposite materials. The proposed algorithm overcomes two major artefacts affecting these images, high level of noise and non-uniform illumination. The identification of the particles is based on the generation of a hierarchy of(More)
Key words: African swine fever virus~interferon (BolFN-ct ; PolFN-y)/tumour necrosis factor SUMMARY Bovine interferon-0ql (IFN-cti1) and porcine interferon-y (IFN-~) inhibited African swine fever virus replication in both porcine monocytes and alveolar macrophages. The most potent antiviral activity was observed with IFN-y-treated alveolar macrophages. The(More)
